Dark Pages Volume 1, Other Updates

The right honorable Brenton Tomlinson has posted cover art for Dark Pages volume 1 from Blade Red Press. It's pretty and has my name on the back. Check it out at Mr. Tomlinson's blog.

The TOC:

"The Stain of the Psychopomp King" by Lucien E G Spelman
"Heart Of Ice" by Martin Livings
"Neptune’s Garden" by Lisa A Koosis
"Dust" by Naomi Bell
"To Die For" by S D Matley
"The Franchise" by Joe L Murr
"Clip Notes" by Marty Young
"Blood on Green" by Victoria Anisman-Reiner
"Cargo" by Aaron Polson
"Nepenthe" by Felicity Dowker
"Yellow Water Pike" by Derek Rutherford
"Surveying The Land" by B D Wilson
"Nightwork" by Robert Neilson
"Hand And Cradle" by Trent Roman

And I'm quite honored to be listed among such fine folks.

As I type, I'm listening to:

Which is, sad to say, out of print. The line up features some rare film scores. I'm sure you can find a used copy out there. It is the interweb, you know.

In the way of attention deficit blogging, I'm happy to report "supernatural" won the monster poll. 18/31 voters agree, with both humans and psychological "monsters" taking in 11 votes for second place. Go supernatural critters!,

If you didn't follow Spider and I, I've posted the whole story in one place over at Dark Flotsam. And the contest. Don't forget the contest to win a copy of The Devil's Food.

Finally, for a Monday reading treat, head over to Dark Recesses to read Cate Gardner's "Events at the Wigwam Rock Diner, Nevada"

I loved Cate's story, and I'm really looking forward to Dark Pages. I can't visit BT's blog at work (for some reason it freezes up my work computer every time), but I'm sure the cover is as awesome as the TOC.

Barry Napier said...

I will now spend the rest of the day looking for a copy of that album.

Alan W. Davidson said...

Well done on making the cut in the Dark Pages V1, Aaron!

Aaron Polson said...

K.C. - I think it should be a good book. The Aussies know their dark spec fic.

Barry - Shouldn't be too hard.

Alan - Thanks. BT really drummed up a lot of interest, and I'm thrilled to be in the TOC.

It's a gorgeous cover. Can't wait to get my hands on that one!

Fox Lee said...

Huzzah on Dark Pages! : )

Kara McElhinny said...

great going for Dark Pages Aaron, and great cover as well :D

as for Spider, I'm sad to say that I've shirked my reading duties and I must get back to it. Thanks for posting the link, I read the first part, but didn't get to catch up on the others.

I'll pop over there momentarily.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks for the link, and beautiful cover. I can't wait to read the antho.

Aaron Polson said...

Katey - it is pretty, isn't it?


Thanks, Hinny. Pop away. ;)

Cate - BT really did a great job "selling" this should be nice.
